As if! Clueless turns 15
If you are in your 20s or even maybe your 30s, there is no doubt that you remember the movie that changed our lives 15 years ago on July 19, 1995. Ok, ok, so it probably wasn’t life changing, but it was a movie that inspired a generation’s trends. Phrases like “As if!”, “He’s such a Baldwin!”, and so many others emerged in high schools around the country as we watched the always impeccably dressed Cher rule her school with fashion and match-making.
Director Amy Heckerling knew exactly what she was doing when she recreated Jane Austen’s Emma in a Beverly Hills high school (Bronson Alcott High was the name of the school in the movie) with Aerosmith video girl, Alicia Silverstone, cast as the lead. The movie was also one of the first for emerging actress, the late Brittany Murphy, who played the lovable but clueless Tai(well, according to Cher). The movie even set into motion a set of books and a somewhat popular TV show based on it. Calvin Klein Creative Director Francisco Costa has even decided to re-issue Cher’s simple white Calvin Klein dress from the movie. With so many memorable scenes, outfits, phrases, and characters, it is no wonder that Clueless is still such a popular movie! So grab your girlfriends and “like totally veg-out” with a bowl of popcorn, a diet coke, and Clueless!
Here’s a little look back in to time with the Clueless trailer to inspire you!
